Legio Solaria Warlord: Sagitta Verum

Well I finished my Warlord, only 22 months after starting putting it together – geez I’m slow.

  • Warlord Sagitta Verum, the Arrow of Truth
  • Princeps Cayttei Lueze
  • During the opening months of the Horus Heresy the Warlord Titan Sagitta Verum saw service on Aedlingon 5, during the Sibarton Offensive where she sustained heavy damage to her left leg and motivators. After refit the next major action was on Clarendon 3 against traitorous forces of Legio Xestobiax under the command of Princeps Tonbo. The ensuing titan conflict wrought heavy loses on both sides. The loss of a number of titans from Lueze’s maniple has ensured if their paths cross again that vengeance shall be served against Princeps Tonbo.

Don’t worry I wont give up my day job to write back story for my titans. I realise it is not my strong point 🙂

However, by way of apology, here are some more pictures of my Solaria titans. The Reaver is nearly there – I just need to finish the Laser Blaster arm.

The Warhounds are also close to being finished. I need to finish the weapons and add some slight weathering.

Warbringer – ahhh – no progress here, so I won’t spoil this post with a mostly incomplete titan.

Nevertheless progress is being made, I have just got to come up with some good Titan names and well written back story 😦

  1. These are all very nice! Pleased to see your progress on this. I’m finally getting a move on with my planned Solaria maniples. I’ve mixed in some of my own ideas with the green scheme I’ve pinched from you!

  3. I’m new to this site but I find your interpretation of their paint job very interesting. How did you get the pattern for the red parts? White first with a watered down red coat?

    • I thought I had a post detailing the red armour. However, it looks like I drafted it but didn’t finalise/publish it. I’ll look into doing that for you.

    • Just in case I do not find time to sort out the article. Here is a brief summary for the red armour:
      1, paint the red armour, including highlighting and shade.
      2, use a dark brown wash paint on a squiggly line, leave it to partial dry. With a clean brush wick away the wet paint. The tide marks that are left behind are the veins in the marble.
      3, once that’s done, go back and paint a few very thin lines with a purple ink.

      • Thank you for responding so quickly. Do you think this and the green painting methods would look just as good on the large Forgeworld Titans? Or would different techniques be needed due to the significantly larger armor pieces?

      • The red armour technique only works because of the small scale. I don’t think it would work on the large scale titans. Green mottling should work ok. Just need more subtle layers I reckon.
